Newton Hospital Donates Money For Waltham Student Health Survey

Survey will be conducted on May 23.

The Waltham Public Schools will continue its bi-annual youth risk behavior survey thanks to a generous donation from a local hospital.

Newton-Wellesley Hospital donated $7,000 dollars to the school district on Wednesday, March 21 to pay for the survey, which evaluates health issues and habits among students. The survey is part of a federal Centers For Disease Control program.

This year, the survey, administered to students in grades 7-12, will be done on May 23 during a one hour classroom session, according to Waltham Public Schools Director of Nurses Marie Desisto.

Newton-Wellesley Hospital President Michael Jellinek presented the donation to the school committee during its meeting last week.

“This survey is critical in terms of understanding at risk behavior among adolescents,” he said.
